Google folks told me the ICE state stuff not being in the spec ( and some other things ) were blocking their ability to check in code.

In part this comes from feedback given (by amongst others Mozilla) when the WG charter was out for AC review saying that they prefer no telcos, but to do all discussion on the list. So we've had a habit of quite few telcos, and at the telcos more touch on the topics but moving the in depth discussion to the list.

Obviously I prefer the list where that works, but for hard things, we need rapid interactive conversations to resolve the issues.

And it would be natural to focus on covering the issues (in priority order) that block implementation in those meetings.

I think we could survive a few more meetings but not too many more. I think many of the people working on this feel like all they ever do is prep material for the next standards meeting and never have time to actually do the standards work. We don't need a lot more meetings - we need to have productive meetings. So far many of the meetings have the form of something is discussed for 20 minutes then no decisions is made. The next time we start right back where we were at the beginning of the previous 20 minute discussion. If we want to finnish this, the meetings need to pick topics we can come to a definitive conclusion on and drive them to conclusion.
